Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: Founded in 1886, Legacoop, Lega Nazionale delle Cooperative e Mutue, (National League of Cooperatives and Mutuals) is the oldest Italian cooperative organization. Legacoop promotes the development of cooperation and mutuality, the economic and solidarity relations of its member cooperatives and encourages the spread of cooperative principles and values.
The more than 15,000 cooperatives belonging to Legacoop are present in all regions and productive sectors. They can be found in leading positions in sectors such as retailing, construction, agro-food, services and manufacturing. Legacoop carries out a role of representation, assistance and protection in the cooperative movement. It also acts as the control and supervision body for its member cooperatives; it guarantees the coordination and orientation of strategies and policies; and it establishes and manages relations with the government, the ministries and relevant parliamentary commissions, and the political, economic and social forces.
Legacoop’s responsibility also involves preparing the legal issues regarding cooperatives, agreed on with the sector and territorial representatives, and undertaking the necessary initiatives for their approval.
Legacoop also coordinates international relations for the member cooperatives, relations with European Union institutions and the management of cooperative industrial relations, also providing support to the various sectors.
The associative structure of Legacoop is divided into autonomous Sector Associations, which organize their cooperatives depending on their sector of activity, and Regional and Provincial Legacoops, which are responsible for managing the territory.

Legacoop is member of the International Cooperative Alliance and Cooperatives Europe, the largest European cooperative representative body set up in November 2006 in Manchester.
